I have a serious question for the v6 pundits.  If we DON'T go to IPv6,
we run a serious risk of actually running out of IP addresses.  Are
we going to turn to bi-level NAT, or N-level NAT, or are we going to
do something _sensible_?

I'm not clue-enabled about ipv6 currently, but I'm trying to learn it.
IPv4 will be here for years, but I think the only people who have a truly
vested interest in forcibly keeping v4 around and not expanding to v6
are the ones who are making money by selectively delegating the addresses
[ARIN and their ilk].  Everything else is a minor technical detail.

What we could stand is someone like Cisco or Nortel, one o' them Big
Gunnish type guys, to come out with routers and switches which handle
IPv6 natively.

Although I suspect that's more a matter of software than hardware...
